From a family day hike throughÂ southern Utahâ€™sÂ Road Canyon toÂ a gruelingÂ scrambleÂ through northern Michiganâ€™s Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, this exhaustive (and highly subjective) list can guide you to your next outdoor adventure, and on adventures for years to come.Â To create the list, weÂ canvassedÂ some of the most accomplished guides, mountaineers, and backcountry adventurers, including pro climber Jimmy Chin, who recommends Wyomingâ€™s â€œstunningly beautifulâ€ Teton Crest Trail as â€œthe number one hike in Americaâ€; three-time Everest summiter Conrad Anker, whose hands-down favorite is the sandstoneÂ Angels Landing Trail in Zion (He says he hikes itÂ â€œbarefoot, to wear-off callusesâ€); legendary mountaineer Jim Whittaker; backpacker Andrew Skurka, and Brad Ludden, who shared a well-kept (until now) local secret in Glacier National Park. Some of these hikes areÂ rambling strolls, and some areÂ true tests of skill and endurance. While most are here at home in the U.S., weâ€™ve thrown in a few classics from around the world, like Icelandâ€™sÂ Laugavegurinn Trail, andÂ Europeâ€™s epic Tour du Mont Blanc. Happy trails.
